Otherwise it's great.

Official Great Lakes Exposition View Book 1936
6 Official Great Lakes Exposition View Book 1936
Cleveland, Ohio Great Lakes Exposition 1936 Card cover Very Good condition Sutcliffe Studios (photography) 
Oddly enough, I have never had a copy of this booklet. I've had two smaller ones, a leaflet, and a ticket, but no big view book. And now that I have one I have no idea where I got it -- it just seemed to pop up out of the ether and take up residence in the closet. Anyway, it's a lovely thing with so many black and white photographs. It's also a 1936 book, the one for the first exposititon. there was another exposition in '37. The boolet measures 7" x 10" and I counted 48 pages, plus a fold-out at the back with a diagram which shows where each experience was located. The contents are clean and tightly bound with just two small blemishes, one at the front cover which is a bit rough and is next to a couple spots browning. The other blemish is on the back, but this one is smoother. Very nice overall.

This is the cleverest travel guide I've ever seen.

It's a great size at 4" x 6" too, perfect for carrying around. The contents say, "See it, buy it, watch it, taste it, know it, note it, index it, and speak it! Sounds like a vacation!

The Paper Doll Playhouse Full of Fun for A Nice Girl (1950's-60's), Smith, Vivian
13 Smith, Vivian The Paper Doll Playhouse Full of Fun for A Nice Girl (1950's-60's)
Hallmark circa late 1950's early 60's Card cover Good condition 
This is a very colorful and cute item, but I have to say that what caught my eye was not cuteness. It was the title -- the second part of the title, that is -- "Full of Fun for A Nice Girl"! It makes me laugh every time I see it. No cranky girls allowed! Now, having said that, I have to admit that for the first time ever I made a repair that is more of an alteration. At the top of the last pop-up room there were a couple lines for To and From gift giving. I wouldn't have minded if it just had the names, but it had been scratched out with a felt pen. The border at the top of the bedroom wall (right hand side of page) was added by me to cover it. The book is spiral bound, very clean with all pop-ups working in four rooms. I suspect there were a few paper dolls, but they've gone astray. The nice part is there's floor room where you could put some doll furniture while playing. Only other fault is the second owner's name on the back of the roof. House measures 8"x7". Nice girls only! :-)
